Mosaic trailer

Director Steven Soderbergh‘s latest experiment has arrived. After investigating different financing models for Logan Lucky earlier this year, the filmmaker has unveiled a new interactive project called Mosaic, which will be broadcast as a six-part limited series on HBO in January. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the story play out. Mosaic is also an interactive app that’s available to download for free right now; using branching narratives, users can choose which perspective to watch the story unfold, and dive back in and explore the narrative from different angles once the story is over to see what you missed.

Writer, director, actor and fashion icon Tommy Wiseau unleashed The Room upon unsuspecting audiences in 2003, creating a film that would achieve cult status as one of the very best worst movies ever made.

Almost three years ago, James Franco optioned the rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist, which the actor wrote about the experience of making The RoomThe Room, of course, is director/writer/star Tommy Wiseau‘s cult midnight classic, a movie made with significantly more passion than skill.

Sharon Stone Marvel Role

Over a month ago, some surprising casting news revealed that Sharon Stone was slated to have what she called a “wee part” in a future Marvel Studios title. Her wording had plenty (including ourselves) guessing that she would be taking a role in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to last year’s franchise starter starring Paul Rudd. More specifically, we thought it would be a good idea for her to play Janet Van Dyne, the original iteration of The Wasp who was hinted to still be alive in the first film.

Now Sharon Stone has revealed a little hint about her character, but rather than feeding into our theories, it’s actually a little confusing. But it doesn’t completely debunk everyone’s guesses either. Find out more about the Sharon Stone Marvel role after the jump. Read More »

Sharon Stone in Ant-Man and The Wasp

Due to the ageism that exists for female actresses in Hollywood, we haven’t seen much of Sharon Stone in the more popular movies of the past decade. In the past 10 years she’s had parts in Alpha Dog, Bobby, Lovelace, Fading Gigolo and that awful Basic Instinct sequel in 2006. Stone even starred in her own series called Agent X on TNT in 2015, which has since been canceled. However, a career boost might be in her future after a certain comic book movie studio gives her a role.

While appearing as a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden (via local news affiliate WBT, brought to our attention by ComingSoon.net), the Basic Instinct star revealed that she will have a role in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie. And the way she worded this revelation makes us think that it will be for the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp. Find out more below. Read More »

mothers and daughters trailer

Susan Sarandon is starring in not one but two movies about mothers and daughters this spring. Since The Meddler is about more than just being a mom — and because we don’t see enough movies about being a mom — getting two of them the same time of year, both starring Sarandon, isn’t such a bad thing. The trailer for the other one, Mothers and Daughters, has just been released, and you can watch it below.

Travolta

You should all be watching American Crime Story: The People v OJ Simpson. Based on the high ratings, a lot of you are watching the FX drama, but if you’re not, you should check out the very addictive, fun and thoughtful drama, which features a great supporting performance from John Travolta. He goes big in the series, showing a whole new side of himself.

Travolta also appears a little different in Life on the Line, an upcoming drama starring the actor, Kate Bosworth, and Sharon Stone. Watch the Life on the Line trailer below.

Sharon Stone in Agent X

Tommy Wiseau‘s infamous cult favorite The Room features a no-name cast of first-time actors, starting with Tommy Wiseau himself — the director / writer / producer cast also himself as the lead, despite a total lack of professional experience on every single one of those fronts. James Franco‘s making-of movie about The Room, on the other hand, is turning out to be quite the star-studded affair.

The latest notable name to sign on for The Disaster Artist is Sharon Stone, who’ll star alongside Dave FrancoSeth RogenZac Efron, and many more in the film. Find out who she’s playing after the jump.  Read More »
